BP Welcomes Delegates to MCEDD 2019

Conference participants,

Welcome to the MCEDD 2019 conference!

The theme of this year’s conference “Remaining Competitive in a Rising Tide” is a timely one, especially with the challenges that the industry continues to face.  While we seek to address these growing issues together, the world will not stand still.  It’s a time in which we are seeing technologies enter unchartered waters and solutions being developed that were once thought to be impossible. 

The world around us is changing, demanding us to keep up and this underpins why conferences like these are valuable.  During this conference, we have an opportunity to collaborate and share different perspectives, both as operators and contractors.  The relationship between these two is key to our future success and working together will be what leads us to the right and most effective solutions for our current and future deepwater projects. 

There has been a lot of interest in the technical program for the 2019 conference and this should make for a meaningful next few days.  You will cover the latest technologies and trends that will inform the way forward for all of us playing into the deepwater agenda.

Once again, welcome to the conference and I wish you a productive time here in London!

  David O’Connor
Head of global projects, Upstream, BP
